All Star Circuit of
Champions Sprint Cars
Tim Shaffer wins Round 2 at Huset's Speedway
BRANDON, S.D. (By Brian
Liskai) 7-31-10 In round two of the OReilly
Auto Parts All Star
Circuit of Champions verses the tough Husets
Speedway stars and Wild West invaders, it was current All
Star Point leader Tim Shaffer who won an exciting shoot
out Saturday night, July 31.
Shaffer, the defending
All Star champion, raced Husets regular Scott
Winters hard over the final 10 laps, finally taking the
led with just two circuits remaining with an exciting
slide job in turn three. Shaffer would drive the Aaron
Call, Janet Holbrook owned #83 to his seventh All Star
For Shaffer, the win was
more gratifying as the previous night saw his race end on
the back of a wrecker after tangling with another
competitor. That crash ended a streak of seven
consecutive top three finishes in All Star competition
for the Steel City Outlaw.
Night number two at the
fast Husets Speedway saw All Star regular David
Gravel and local Jake Peters lead the field to the green.
Gravel, who finished second the previous night, would be
hard on the gas and blast into the lead, setting a
blistering pace. The young Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion
would hit the back of the field in just four laps. The
car on the move was Winters who moved into second from
his fourth-starting position.
Racing through lapped
traffic on the fast 3/8th of a mile track, Winters would
charge into the lead on lap 7, racing to the outside of
Gravel in turn four. While the top three did not change
through the first 17 laps as Winters led Gravel and
Peters, it was Shaffer and the previous nights
winner Tim Kaeding charging to the front from their sixth
and seventh place starting spots respective. Shaffer and
Kaeding put on a driving clinic as they used all of the
high-banked speedway to dart in and out of lapped
Shaffer would take third
on lap 18 and moved into second on lap 19, bringing
Kaeding into third and moving Gravel back to fourth.
The racing action would
grind to a half on lap 20 as Troy Meyer hit the wall in
turn one and took a nasty tumble. On the restart Winters,
who has a feature win at Husets this season, had
three lapped machines between himself and Shaffer, but
when the green came back out, Shaffer quickly
disposed of them in turns one and two and moved right on
Winters rear bumper with nine laps remaining. The
crowd was on their feet as Winters and Shaffer battled
each other side-by-side. Shaffer made his move on lap 28,
executing a perfect slide job in turn three to take the
lead as they came to the white flag.
Shaffer would drive his
VRP Shocks, Kistler Engines mount to the checkered over
Winters, Kaeding, Gregg Bakker, who has two wins at
Husets in 2010 and who charged from 12th starting
spot, and Gravel.
